Living the Media and Communications dream! I was fortunate enough to be able to work full time whilst I studued a Communication and Media certificate through OTEN. I was working as a Campaign Manager and decided it was time to expand my skills in the direction of media.
Once I had completed my certificate with OTEN, I continued to work in my current role. To my suprise, I won a global award for the work I had been doing with our charity partners, this saw me have the amazing opportnity to volunteer in Ghana, Africa for one week! I was tecahing, visiting hospitals, building furniture and speaking with local women. This saw me represent the company globally and whilst I was away I had to put my new media skills to the test. I was blogging, taking video footage and many photos, keeping a travel diary and reporting back to the office for comms to be sent. When I retunred to Australia, I was asked to round up my trip and do a global presentation to the company. This required the skills I had learnt thruogh OTEN and I am very grateful for the opportunities that OTEN allow through correspondance. I will definately look at doing another certificate in the future. As my contract with my current company is coming to an end I have set myself up with these skills to transfer to my new employer and expand on.
